Associate Professor

Shi Cao is pronounced like SHER TSAO. Dr. Cao’s major research area is human factors engineering. His research projects include human performance and workload modeling, human-machine system reliability, and the applications of virtual and augmented reality. He has developed cognitive models and human performance simulation systems that can be used to model and predict human performance and other human factors constructs in various work domains.

Graduate Supervision:

From Shi Cao’s Google Scholar list, he has worked on cognitive modelling and simulation of operator behaviour. His previous work has applied such research methods in the driving safety domain. The same methods can be applied to aviation model pilot behaviour.
